Meet The Team - Martin Öste
How do you train?
Currently I mostly do weight training in the gym, but I recently also started CrossFit. In the past I ran marathons and participated in long distance cross-country skiing at Vasaloppet.
What/Who motivates or inspires you in life and your fitness?
I'm a competitive person who like to go all in! Love the feeling of endorphins after a hard workout!
I also really like to help and motivate other people to change their life into a healthier lifestyle!
Not that many people know it, but Arnold Schwarzenegger really has a huge passion to help people to live a healthy life through fitness and does remarkable efforts in that area for kids and teenagers worldwide for them to discover fitness and be healthy. I actually get a lot of motivation from Arnold.
After my school years in Sweden, when I just turned 18 I went to LA to live the California dream 100%!
How did you get into the fitness industry?
My entrepreneurial life started already when I was 18. For 2 years I worked as a Personal trainer at Gold's Gym in Venice, CA (Los Angeles) and had so much fun, met so many interesting people, and learned so much about life.
Right before I turned 20 I went back to Europe and started our business with Better Bodies, a few years later we started GASP and I still love it!
Why you love working with SF Group?
It's great to be able to combine my passion for making the world better and healthier through fitness and doing business at the same time!
What are your hobbies outside of work?
Jetski, exercise, tour the world on MC, renovating our old Victorian house, learn about business, and spend time with my family.
